By Ben Yount | Watchdog Radio

This is the inaugural episode of "In The Arena," the Watchdog.org podcast that features writers from Watchdog Arena - the folks who are out there everyday doing their part to expose waste, fraud and abuse.

In this first episode, host Ben Yount sits down with Ryan Hegemann to discuss how the federal government is dealing with the emerging technology of commercial drones. Congress has ordered the FAA to make rules for how drones can operate in the United States, but it's taking a long time to get rules finalized and that's costing the American economy.

Ryan Hagemann is a masters student in public policy at George Mason University and the co-author of a recent Mercatus paper, “Removing Roadblocks to Autonomous Vehicles.” His research interests include decentralized peer-to-peer networks, Trans-humanism, stateless social organization, robotics and automation, and studies at the intersection of sociology, economics, and technology.
